2 days of Cajun & Zydeco music and dance !

Remember, in 2018 :

 

 

In 1682, the Ponchartrain Castle landowner, Jerome Phelypeaux, who was the Navy Minister of Louis XIV, was encouraged by the King to explore and colonize the Louisiana area. This why the city of Pontchartrain has been part, in the past, of the French American, and in particular the actual Louisiana State. 

In 1998, the cities of Pontchartain (France) and Hammond (Louisiana, USA) became twin cities. A non-profit Association TOPE-LA was created which is actually initiating the fourth Cajun and Zydeco music Festival : 
 

 

The object of this gathering is to promote the French speaking culture in Louisiana through different activities such as music, literature, art and cooking, practices alive in Louisiana. 

As a consequence, this Festival will help to concretize and to innovate many exchanges and ties between our two countries, whether they are cultural, educational or historical.
